'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Defender would welcome reunion

Reuniting Dean Whitehead with Grant Leadbitter at Middlesbrough would be a great move, according to defender Tony McMahon.

Boro continue to be linked with Whitehead following his release after four years from Stoke City. He previously enjoyed a successful partnership with current Riverside schemer Leadbitter at Sunderland.

"Dean's a hardworking central midfielder who has a good engine, he really covers a lot of ground," McMahon told the Evening Gazette. "I've played against him and Grant when they were playing for Sunderland and I was with Boro, they were tough opponents.

"He's spent a lot of his career in the top flight and you don't play that many Premier League games if you're not a decent player," he continued. "He'd be a great signing."
